OUR MISSION IS TO CONNECT AND ORGANIZE THE WORLD'S PEOPLE. DO GOOD.
Tendenci Credits - Core Developers
Thank you to our current core developers for adding issues, pull requests, documentation, and helping the community. Without idealistic people working on this open-source project and trying to change the world, Tendenci would not be possible.
WE JUST WANT TO CHANGE THE WORLD AS WE KNOW IT. AND WE WILL.
Tendenci - The Open Source AMS is built on Python and Django, with a PostgreSQL database, and was released with a GPL3 Open source license in 2012. We are always seeking developers and designers who want to contribute to our open source themes and integrations for Tendenci. Here are some of the ways for you to get involved with the Tendenci Open Source Community.
Developers Getting Started
Our open source community welcomes all levels of developers and designers - including newbs, college freshmen, and programmers who haven't touched code since Fortran! We offer three ways for you to contribute to the Tendenci open source community if you’re a web developer:
- Design themes,
- Build integrations, and
- Integrate your existing apps
Design Tendenci Themes
Our themes support CSS/HTML designs and the integration with Tendenci's software relies on Django Template tags.
Watch this video for a tour of Tendenci's Theme Editor which enables you to upload new theme templates, stylesheets, and images easily.
Custom Apps and Integrations
Develop custom add-on apps and/or integrate your association's needs to your AMS website with Tendenci. We also provide training programs for developers seeking help with a custom integration between a Tendenci site and your existing applications. We're working on a Tendenci API and documentation that we hope to release later this year.
